Case Study

Founded in 1996, the Swiss-based medical technology company works closely with leading clinics and research centers to develop innovative therapy solutions.



Gait rehabilitation is a major aspect of neurological rehabilitation. Locomotion therapy supported by an automated gait orthosis on a treadmill has shown to be an effective intervention for improving over-ground walking function caused by neurological diseases and injuries in many cases. The Lokomat® system assists walking movements of gait-impaired patients and is used to improve mobility in individuals following stroke, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis as well as other neurological diseases and injuries.

Since its arrival on the market, the Lokomat®Pro has been a crucial improvement in the art and science of locomotion therapy. The product is based on research and development activities at the Balgrist University Hospital.
